In the passed year there has been a noticeable upswing of men sporting three-piece suits, with matching or patterned waistcoats layered between the button-down and suit jacket. Not only do they set you apart from the crowd, they are a timeless option that can serve an important function in colder climates by providing you with an added layer of warmth when you need it.

In addition to looking damn right put together, the three piece suit has…


A man wearing a 3 piece suit is hard to beat. Wearing all three pieces is formal, authoritative and striking. You will never feel under dressed and will automatically be set apart from the pack.


The added vest allows for a lot more combinations that are just not possible with the two piece suit. Of course, a three-piece suit can always become a two-piece suit through the simple act of leaving the waistcoat at home, but mixing and matching odd vests can allow one to create countless different looks. Also, worn on its own, the waistcoat of a three-piece suit is an acceptable piece of dress-casual clothing that can be worn with rolled up sleeves for more of an old classic look. Don’t forget the trousers can be worn with a button up shirt and sweater on the weekend.


The three piece suit elongates the silhouette, making a short man look taller, and a tall man look tallest. Plus it conveniently helps to disguise spare tires, bad posture, or an unpressed shirt. Instant boost indeed. Plus, a man will still look great even when he takes the jacket off, making it a killer look for parties that will have some opportunity for dancing.

If you didn’t know before, now you do. A 3-piece suit is more than just a single ensemble, and serves in multiple fashion opportunities. Each of the 3 looks can be changed up by wearing different coloured vests, shirts, ties, bow ties, belts, watches, hats and overcoats. If you’re looking to up the ante, it’s all about the 3 piece.
